For anyone interested in what Annique looks like ... I kinda pictured her as a young Natassja Kinski.
Can't post her picture, not having the rights, but there's a link to it. Here.
There's no reason heroines have to be beautiful. Not generally. But Annique's job calls for a degree of beauty, so she gets to have it.
Jessamyn is another reasonably pretty girl, but the generality of mankind doesn't turn to watch her pass in the street. I'm thinking Robin Wright. Here.
